Less than 10% of disabled kids in Tanzania are in school. Simply unacceptable.

Tanzania. Our priorities.

Access to school for disabled kids

Through our local partners, we are reaching out to disabled kids living in rural areas and we're helping them to enrol into school. 

Teaching materials in resource centres

In the Pawani region, we're setting up Resource Centres where teachers can find the tools they need to teach to disabled children, such as Braille kits.

Lobbying and campaigning

We work with teachers, local authorities, and key institutions to convince them of the importance of inclusive education.
